21 Kintail Road
This $10M office building at 21 Kintail Road in Applecross provides a single level of underground car parking and 4 levels of premium office space. It was built on a sloping site with an existing two storey building on the perimeter at one end of the building.
Apart from the slope and bordering properties, the core challenge in this project was meeting the Client’s financial investment limits. Advanced Substructures changed the construction from conventional open excavation to the ASL version of top down construction. In partnership with the selected builder, this build was achieved with minimal stress and superb results, on-time and on budget.
Limited available project finance prevented commencement
Limited space for underground retaining structures prevented construction of the required number of car parking spaces to ensure building compliance
Impact of construction on vulnerable bordering 2 Storey House
Reduction of capital costs by $500,000; enabling delivery of project.
Piles to Pillars method limited the area used by retaining structures and provided the ability to build basement up to the boundaries of the property; delivering sufficient car parking spaces to make building compliant
No impact on bordering property
